CowManager new nutrition module points out cows at risk & gives insights in feed and transition

     Koen van Meurs, Head of R&D at CowManager, explains: “Nutrition is of great importance to a cows’ performance. It also accounts for the largest portion of the variable costs on farms. Having the right insights to make data-driven decisions about feed and transition management, are key to successful and profitable farming. Machine learning technology helped us to create exactly these insights based on the behavior and temperature data we collected from millions of cows worldwide.”  

Feed supplement for dairy cows cuts methane emission by about a quarter

       The addition of 3-Nitrooxypropanol to the feed of dairy cows reduced their enteric methane emissions by about 25% in a recently published study — one in a series of Penn State studies of the investigational substance in the United States — which might be an early step toward it being approved for use in this country.

     Often referred to as 3-NOP, the compound inhibits an enzyme that is crucial to the final stage of methane synthesis in a cow’s rumen. When 3-NOP is fed to cattle, their methane production is inhibited, explained researcher Alex Hristov, distinguished professor of dairy nutrition, College of Agricultural Sciences.

Examining the mystery of fall army worms

          A Texas A&M University graduate student received a research grant to better identify, understand and ultimately mitigate fall armyworm populations in Texas and the central U.S.

          Ashley Tessnow, a doctoral candidate in the Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Department of Entomology, said armyworms have long been a pest that agriculture producers throughout the central U.S have tried to manage. But despite the long-standing battle against fall armyworms, there is still a lot experts do not understand about the pest.

Pioneer mobile tool Identifies pests, diseases and deficiencies in crops

   

          A few months ago, Pioneer released a major update to its Pioneer Seeds App with a new tool: Threat ID. This technology delivers farmers access to cutting-edge pest, disease and deficiency identification technology for their crops in the palm of their hands.

          Threat ID, powered by Plantix, allows farmers to detect issues impacting their fields by simply taking one crop photo. It then recognizes the specific patterns left behind by pests and provides an immediate identification of the most likely pest or disease threats and nutrient deficiencies. Threat ID boosts the efficiency of scouting and allows farmers to schedule follow-up consultations with their local Pioneer agronomist.
